daily change numbers are wrong

Recommended Posts

I mentioned it a few years ago and got the response that IG is doing it the correct way.

However, today is a fine example when the daily change in the dashboard is completely wrong, because it is based on the closing price vs opening price, rather than yesterdays closing price:

LPD went down 7.4% today and every other source agrees with that yet the IG dashboard says 0% change? How come?

Interesting, but which IG dashboard has 0%, the chart says -7.49% but is showing no candle at all for yesterday (0%)?

That's a screenshot from my dashboard yesterday after market close. It states the price as 2.5c, which is in agreement with other sources.

The same today, the IG dashboard fo my account shows LPD +3.85% (or 0.1c up) with a closing price of, wait: 2.5c ! Hmmm, that's the same as yesterday's closing price.

I see this market has gone 'closing trades only', seems to be very low in liquidity.

I'm not sure how liquidity would affect the math. IG and every other bank has a closing price, but it seems IG is using the opening price to determine the daily change. This leads to reporting different numbers compared to other banks at the end of the trading day.  It's not just this stock.

    • Hi all, been up and running and watching from the side lines. Thanks for putting the list up early as I made my own list from the gap scanner from ideas but you seemed to have more plus alot of the tickers I could not trade on IG but jumped on TG Therapeutics at 973 and took some money from that. Then jumped back in at 1059 and she plummeted and my heart just sank. I managed to ride it back up to 1053 and got out with a small profit of £20. Should have put my stop in but am still learning to get out quick . I was so lucky it went back up. Thought I was going to be on a bad loss because I didn't get out early enough. I find that if you only gain a small amount each day its better that going hard at it and loosing.  Still got loads to learn. Anyway cant wait till monday.  Great content and look forward to next week. Have a great weekend.
    • Is it safe to come out now?
